Arp 238

  Arp 238 continues the Appearance of Fission class.  The Atlas note is "VV position somewhat uncertain.  Double nuclei, N nucleus has third arm".  I believe that it should say the S nucleus.  The southeastern member is cataloged as MCG +10-19-56 and also as UGC 8335; the northwestern member is MCG +10-19-57.

A 2X enlargement is shown but there really isn't a lot more visible.
